I would imagine that few Americans can identify Jean Rollin. But Portland's video/DVD store Movie Madness has a whole shelf of his movies. From what I saw in "Vierges et vampires" (aka "Requiem for a Vampire"), I would derive that his movies involve gore and full-scale erotica. Specifically, this one has two hot teenage girls running away from school and ending up in a castle inhabited by sex-obsessed vampires. By sex-obsessed, I mean that there's a scene where the vampires torture some prisoners, and much of the whole sequence consists of shots of women's naked bodies.
So, since I haven't seen any of Rollin's other movies, I'll have to assume that his movies consist of this...and I LIKE IT! As far as I'm concerned, this is what horror movies were meant to be! If there's any guiltier pleasure, I'm not sure that I want to know about it. Specifically, this is the sort of movie that I'd like to experience.
So, I recommend this movie. If, having not seen this movie, you thought that you knew to what extent the French are into love and sexuality, then you ain't seen nothing yet! Because I must repeat: those girls were REALLY hot!
